The Hawaii State Public Library System will offer free Easter-themed programs and events at selected public libraries on Maui:
* 10:05 a.m. Saturday - "Easter Egg Hunt" at Kihei Public Library. Children ages 5 and younger, accompanied by a parent or caregiver, are invited to bring their own basket to search for colorful plastic eggs containing one small surprise (sticker, chocolate, temporary tattoo) in the Children's Section. Older siblings may accompany their brothers or sisters on this Easter Egg Hunt with the understanding that the event is for very young children. The Kay A.
